Epic V8

The V8 is unique in it's class. Fast, yet extremely stable, this is a surfski that most paddlers or paddlers-to-be should be able to hop right onto and paddle away!

The deck features the surfski simplicity found throughout the Epic range, the main components being a fully adjustable footplate and rear deck bungees.

The V8 also incorporates some new features that add to its user friendly appeal: molded in bow & stern carry handles, and a water bottle holder in the cockpit. A venturi drain, breather tube and Epic surfski rudder configurations are standard.

Epic's goal with the V8 was to provide a boat that bridges the gap between sea kayaks and surfskis. By blending speed, high stability and a performance oriented deck & outfitting, the V8 offers new levels of accessibility and opportunity. 

Fitness paddlers and racers who want extra emphasis on stability, touring kayakers looking to make the transition to high performance surfskis, or recreational paddlers looking for a simple, efficient boat for a day on the water. The V8 will take you there!
